We just got off the plain in concun Mexico when I let my camera slide off my sholder and hit the ground wnen I powered it up I only get this message. What do i need to do?
I went an got another Camera for my trip but I would like to fix mu old one to give it to my sun to use itis a DX6490 model and really took good pics.
Camera error # E45 may be caused by the shutter/lens mechanism failure. This needs the cameara to be sent to Kodak if you are to use your warranty but seeing you may be far off from where you bought it here is my suggested solution-:
1. Put the Camera on the AC Adapter and switch it on. This may solve your problem if not...
2. Slightly smack or tap the side of the camera or lens several times with your shoe or boot while switching it on . This may shake off the dirt stuck between the shutter mechanism and release your camera to work again.
Do not smack or hit it on a very hard surface.
Please advise me if this worked for you.

Kodak indicates that the e45 error means that it's time to repair your camera.
But, it could be that your battery no longer has the capacity to adequately power the camera, especially the lens function. Lithium Ion batteries lose capacity over time. If your battery is over 3 years old, a simply replacing the battery may solve the problem.
Turn your camera on and smack the camera against your hand. The E45 error means your lens is stuck. The lens on my V603 was stuck open, when I smacked it against my hand it closed and now works fine. Give that a shot.
